-Beside the passion in few indie labels' owners, who are definitely still fans before sellers, how d'you see the prevailing tendency of most of the big indie labels to level their bands' quality, so as to make them sound similar the way the public want, and be sure to sell a bunch of copies? Which also happened to one of your bands, who were required to find a cute frontwoman and have more aggressive sounds
THAT'S NORMAL. RECORD LABELS (CODE666 TOO) ARE NOTHING BUT MERCHANTS. AND A MERCHANT HAVE TO SELL HIS STUFF. NOBODY'S UPSET IF A FASHION COMPANY TRY TO PRODUCE TRENDY STUFF, SO WHY A RECORD COMPANY CANNOT DO IT? I MEAN, CODE666 IS A SMALL CULT LABEL, SO IF WE WILL START PRODUCING TRENDY STUFF, WE WILL LOOSE THE FEW FANS WE HAVE, BUT NUCLEAR BLAST MUST ACT LIKE THIS, IF NOT, WILL BECOME A SMALL ONE LIKE CODE666 MUSIC IS A PRODUCT FOR ALL THE LABELS, MAJOR AND INDIE, SAD BUT TRUE

BETWEEN POP AND METAL OR BETWEEN PUNK AND HARDCORE
AND ITALIAN MUSIC SUCKS
IT'S NOT A TUMOR, THE FACT IS THAT THE
MUSIC SUCKS FOR A LOT OF REASONS:
